Ok, so I did it. With my current setup anydbm uses dbhash/bsddb, and training
(on a single message) performance seems _worse_ than with the pickle (about 20
seconds now, around 10 with pickle). Don't know whether the training itself is
slower or updating the database. Training with my entire corpus took many times
longer as well. Not to mention that the database is now 20 megs instead of 5...
Would gdbm be expected to work faster? (I currently don't even have it.)
